Reviews for Granville Island Public Dock
Amazing market, 2016-10-16
Captain: , Chicago (80)

We had a little routine of puling up to this dock, walking a quick walk to Fisherman's Wharf (which wanted to charge CAD$37 for 4 hours) to do laundry and take a shower. Get a fish sandwich from the stand right there, their special of the day has always been delicious. We would then walk back to the boat and go to the market for supplies. Fresh local food with a fun atmosphere. I was there in off season so maybe it can be hard to get a spot in the summer, but early fall was a breeze.

3 hours public moorage for shopping etc. HOWEVER reservations accepted for overnight! Stayed here two days, and there isn't a better spot to access the very busy Granville Public Market. Moorage is OK, nice concrete floats, with 30 amp, but no water. You are broadside to the channel traffic wakes, but it is a 5 Knt. zone, and generally adhered. This is not your pristine island mooring, but if you like food, an Arts Theatre, open market with everything, this is your spot in the city.

Public dock, so public use it - but genrally you're left alone. Facilities are good, ferry's start running at 0600, lots of vessel trffic and you're broadside... Best bet is to anchor out and dinghy over...

Nice docks, walk up the ramp to the Granville Island market and shops. A five minute walk takes you Fisherman's Wharf for showers and clothes washing. There's a West Marine handy, and a Safeway 7 blocks away. Ask at the office for a map.
